February 4 is World Cancer Day

World Cancer Day held every 4 February is the global uniting initiative led by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC). By raising worldwide awareness, improving education and catalyzing personal, collective and government action, we are all working together to reimagine a world where millions of preventable cancer deaths are saved and access to life-saving cancer treatment and care is equitable for all - no matter who you are or where you live.

IMMUNOTHERAPY
Immunotherapy is a type of drug or medication that can block the signals that cancer cells use to “hide” from our immune system. Blocking these signals allows the immune system to fight cancer in a very different way than other treatments like chemotherapy or radiation therapy, which directly damage cancer cells.
SURVIVOR CIRCLE
ASTRO established the Survivor Circle to honor cancer survivors and support groups during our Annual Meeting. Applications for the 2023 Survivor Circle Grant are now being accepted.
